Ontario Provincial Police Charge 10 for Motorcycle Stunt Driving

Ontario Provincial Police arrested 10 people on 48 charges during a three-month investigation into “dangerous motorcycle stunts” in the Greater Toronto area, officials said on Wednesday, September 20.

Project SADDLE was conducted between June and September, and officials released aerial video of the motorcycle driving behavior that was investigated and lead to the charges.

“Dozens of riders on sport bikes actively participated in numerous coordinated stunts that purposefully snarled traffic and put the lives of participants and the safety of other road users and pedestrians in jeopardy,” police said in a statement.

Police also said the same group of motorcycle riders has been known to refuse to stop and have “swarmed police officers in a threatening manner on several occasions.” Credit: Ontario Provincial Police via Storyful
